Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone vs norco

oxycontin

I am having kidney stones and the doctor put me on Percocet and told me to stop the Norco..Is Percocet stronger than Norco? The stones are killing me.
My dr took me off 30mg oxycodone ir and replaced it with 10mg opana ir, because my tolerance to oxycodone was too high. I have been on opana a few days now, and I am doinh pretty well (none of these meds completely relieve my back pain even after several surgeries) but I would say trust in your dr, and if what he is doing doesnt help, let him know as soon as you can.
I found Norco works better for me than percocett. My Norco is 10/352 which is 10mg hydrocodone and 325 of acetemetephin. I have had cervical fusion and plating on C5/6 and then several levels above and several levels below are bulging or blown but I'm not ready for more surgery as I am too active.
wrote me a letter that he no longer wants to see me, I have to find a new Dr. But I looked up Norco vs Hydrocdone and they are not the same pill nor are they related. He wrote a rude letter, and kicked me to the curb for nothing. He needs to know his meds.
Tylenol 3 is better for wisdom tooth removal,small surgeries or injuries,smaller issues,Hydrocodone is for most surgeries(they gave me Norco 5/325 for when I had my appendix removed),Oxycodone is usually for major surgeries and major pain or accidents.
I have on a 180mg a day oxycodone habit. Actually both me and my husband are. Its gitten so bad that when we run out o medication we resort to heroin just to avoid the symptoms of withdrawl. Its a sad situation i know. We have made the concious decision to stop . As of this friday we will be out of medication and have taken time off of work to detox ourselves.
When I was pregnant with my son, I was gven 5mg lortabs in my 2nd trimestor only, and was instructed to take them only when the pain was to the point that I couldn't handle it anymore, and to not take them consistantly (to avoid addiction) She was even sketchy about giving me those. Oxycodone is a lot stronger than a lortab. You can also google oxycodone and pregnancy to find more information. Please do not take any of those untill you speak with your doctor.
You'll see I post ALOT on Axiety but this i my First post in the part of the Forums. I've been on Norco 10/325 now for 8-9 years due to a Lower back injury. I get 120 a Month. I did see a Pain management doctor and he have my 160 but he stopped taking my insurance so Now my Primary doc gives my 120 a month. Anyways... I told him how I may take 2 rather than one at a time due to my pains being so intense. I will ONLY take 2 whn and only my pain is super intence keep in mind.
It has been up to 14 to 15 pills daily of extra strength norco vicodin. I am trying to wean myself down right now. My script ran out and I had to go the ER and they gave me Percocet there for a pain I was lying about. My question is how strong is the 500/325 percocet in relation to the 750 norco vicodin? I am trying to take only 10 percocet a day and survive. WHat does 10 percocet equate to in terms of ES vicodin?
That' sall well and good, but I know for a fact that I feel much differently when taking one vs. the other. Maybe he was handing me a line.
I've never experienced quitting before now but even tho my doc Is oxycodone 15mg I also take adderals which I didn't know until recently that they were addicting but I had no problem with stopping them as we'll as valuims and restorils. I can stop taking them with no problem.
I'm currently the best that I have been in five years and am down to one 30mg Roxicodone (one in morning and one at night) and three 10mg Norco. I am on disability so I have the ability to limit activity and am trying to get as low as possible and as close to the ideal number of zero narcotics as possible. My pain in the shoulder is influenced by anxiety. How do you differentiate real pain from the narcotic withdrawl?
I have been wasting all of my money on oxycodone. I had a great job that I started 6 yrs. ago and then about 2 yrs. ago I started. I gained 40 pounds because of the drug but I couldn't stop; I became an awesome liar. I told everyone I had a medical issue then the lies just kept on coming; I think if there were a contest I would win "Liar of the Year." Anyhow!!
I have been taking Oxycodone 30mg for almost 3 years. Started on 5mg and my dr increased over the years. I have two hernitated discs in my back & my pain at time was so awful. I finally received a epidural and starting to feel better. Saw my dr today and he stopped my oxycodone and put me on Butrans patch 20mg. It has not been 24 hrs yet and I am starting to get ill. Will this get better? He told me I would be fine, but I feel super sick.
Norco is better than most because it only has 325 of Tylenol Vs. 500 or 650. To my knowledge hydrocodone which is the narcotic agent in Norco (I take it too) does not come in a tablet all on it's own. In order to get rid of the Tylenol you have to move up to the drug oxycodone which is in drugs like Percocet they make oxycodone tabs without Tylenol. Question is why are you so worried about your liver? Is your liver already compromised?
My body is screaming for the Norco.... I posted earlier but have no idea where it went.... Trying to stay active... Went to physical therapy today...in the Epsom bath right now... Used my tens unit before the bath...it all helps... Just have to STAY THE COURSE... I'd say there's a fine line between addiction and pain management...My question: do you all think that whether its killing mental pain and anguish or physical pain... It's still addiction? Right?? That's what I'm trying to remember....
I have recently been referred to a new pain management doc and he is in the process of adding/switching me over to Kadian for long-acting pain control vs. just the Norco I have been on....my question primarily is how long will it take for me to adjust to the change from short acting opiate to the extended release meds...
Substitution treatment with buprenorphine was associated with both higher adherence rates (27.3% vs 8.1%, P = .04) and higher sustained viral response rates (83.3% vs 48.9%, P = .002), compared with methadone use. In multivariate analyses, adherence to treatment (P < .0001) and buprenorphine use (P = .007) were independently associated with a greater chance of sustained virologic response. Buprenorphine may be a more effective treatment for opioid withdrawal, Dr.
His reasoning for the Roxicet was that it's a different makeup than the Norco (narcotic vs. opiod). After I poured my guts out about what I'm going through, I got a prescription for MORE pain pills. UNBELIEVABLE. He said that the Roxicet is a step down from the Norco - and you know what? It is NOT. Not only is it a step UP, it contains Oxycodone, which is the LAST thing I need - a more addictive ingredient than what's in Norco. Then he said, "See you in a month." WOW.
Endocet is the generic name, and has oxycodone in it as well. Oh yes, also your first Rx had 5mgs of oxycodone, whereas your last one had 7.5mgs.
Also, is it true that with Subutex, you won't suffer withdrawls from the norco? I'm so ready and excited to get off the norco safely, but I am so scared.
I can’t tell you the number of patients we receive for detoxification that were given a prescription for Vicodin for a minor pain, like a backache or tooth pain, which eventually led them to take a stronger opiate like oxycodone, creating a domino effect. It’s become a trend in this country for medical professionals to write prescriptions for hydrocodone drugs too quickly, which is creating an epidemic of these drugs being overprescribed to patients who often times don’t need them.
I've been reading posts in here and it seems alot of people are/were addicted to vicoden/lortab/norco and oxycontin, but I haven't read about anyone being addicted to dilaudid or oxymorphone. Are 2 drugs considered as addictive as oxycontin? I'm asking because my g/f's pain doctor might switch her from methadone to one of these. She doesnt abuse her methadone at all, she has no desire, but I have seen her take excessive amounts of oxycontin in the past. Thanks!
